Registering A Horse

I bought a purebred quarter horse filly this past summer. Her dam was registered. Her sire though, could be registered but was not before he got sold. I was really wondering if I could register her if I got the mares registered name and the sires name.

If the sire of my filly was registered, she would be eligible too. I have never seen the stud or even know his name as he was sold before I bought my filly.

Can she still be registered without the stud, if I asked the owner what his name is? Or would I have to track him down and ask his new owners if they registered him?

Hmm, I honestly don't know. My first guess would be that yes, you would need to find a way to track down the stallion. You might also have to provide a breeding certificate. Your best bet might be to email the AQHA and find out if there is anything that can be done for your specific situation and what they would recommend.

You would have to find out if he was registered. There is no way the AQHA will register your filly if the sire is not registered.

What Chiilaa said. The only halfbreeds the AQHA will register are Appendix, and only if the QH parent is registered and DNA typed, and you can prove the other parent is a TB.

I am sorry to bust your plan of registering this filly.
First of all the sire would have to be registered with AQHA. It is VERY doubtful that the new owners did that because registering a 3+ year old horse with AQHA is very expensive. Registration fees 36 month to 48 month: $550; 48 month and older: $1000. Yes, AQHA feels like they are worth it ;-(
No matter what the name of the sire is - AQHA will not have any use for it without a registration.
Now, let's say the new owner DID register the horse and he has a name AQHA can deal with - even then there are many steps to go through. First somebody needs to file a stallion report ($25 + $5 for the mare plus $30 late fees). Then AQHA will ask for a DNA of the stallion ($50). They may ask for a DNA of the dam too if she did not have one done before ($50). Then, and only then, you can get an application for your filly. By the time you have that she will probably be already two years old. Registration fee for her is now $300.
Now, if the stallion was a Paint Horse (APHA) (I was thinking because of her blue eye) it would be a bit cheaper ... but the process would be the same.

Okay, I am not registering her. I am not going to pay that much for registering her, even if I could. I got her for $150 and am not planning on selling her so I really don't need to register her.

PS: I would try to find out names/bloodlines of the sire and dam anyway, just for your own records. I make my own "breeding certificates" if I end up with unregistered horses - just nice to have a piece of paper with some information, and if it is only the birth date

I am not, I should be saying thanks for telling me how much it costs. Would it be the same if you lived in Canada?

I agree with Caljane, it would still be nice to know bloodlines, just for your own records. Too bad that it doesn't seem you can register her, but if you've got a nice horse that you enjoy working with, I wouldn't think it's such a huge deal anyway.
